conceded to them that obama has a much clearer path to victory. most disappointing they say is ohio now leans clearly in obama's favor which is why mitt romney is at a rally right now. politico ken vogel it here with us. ken, no republican has won the white house without winning ohio in the entire history of america. given your reporting at politico, this thing over? should we all go home? >> certainly the advantage obama is enjoying in ohio is something that cheers his supporters in his campaign, but they even acknowledge there's still a lodge way to go particularly to the economic trend line if the job reports have bad news. there's a chance for mitt romney to make it around the economy and hang the economy around obama's neck. if he does that, we'll see movement in ohio potentially. the other thing kind of favors romney even though president obama outraised him for the first time in august. we saw them just come out with their figures early it this morning. these outside groups that mitt romney has on the side are able to if he cannively bring a negative message in a different way th

, not surprisingly, these were great speeches from michelle obama and bill clinton. they were great speeches. his felt like a thud. reporters think president obama's speech was lame, meandering and sounding like a state of the union address. people at the after-parties seemed baffled that he didn't lift his game for the big moment. i will say i very much appreciated his i am the president moment. i think had this might have been a nod to my friend aaron sore kin. can we play that clip? >> my name is andrew shepherd, and i am the president. >> from "the american president." i loved it. it was great. it works. that's what that audience wanted to see, president looking presidential and owning it. >> i think there's been a lot of comments you alluded to there of people saying this is not the obama we've come -- this is not the big speech obama that we've come to see from denver, boston and all these things. i agree it wasn't. i'm not sure it was the right decision. my sense of why that was is because they were spooked by one of the republican lines in the attack against president obama. 23 million is

't frankly understand the outrage, because it seems to me he has stolen a page right of obama's playbook on this. i want to read a clip from a fund-raiser that obama held in 2011 in san francisco where he told donors, as he told people on the stump for a year, unless he's re-elected, we'll have a government that tells the american people, you're on your own. if you get sick, can't afford college, you're on your own. if you don't like a corporation polluting the air, you're on your own. if he's not calling his voters victims, we need a new definition of the word. in fact, democrats and liberals in the name of obama support have been talking about how their voter base, women, illegal immigrants, minorities and the lee are victims of the republican parties. i think the message obama has been promoting for a year of two americas, us versus them, we're going to take care of you, they'll live you to die or live in squalor, that's what romney is saying. >> we're going to leave you out in squalor? >> no. >> to me, that's what he's saying. >> he's accepting obama's characterization of his own bas
